Cognac Boots and Target Tunic

It's boot season again and I finally brought my boots out of hiding. I think these ones are in their third season and they are beginning to get worn because I wear them so much. I'm beginning to love button down tunics. They are a little dressier and definitely great for my apple shape. 
Today is an exciting day for me. I will share later because I'm writing this post in a hurry. But hint hint, there will be no more Engineer Style posts....Have a great weekend!

Olive Cropped Khakis

Did I mention how much I love these Old Navy Boy Friend Khakis? I wore the navy ones here. This is my fifth pair of cropped pants from Old Navy. I think they made their cropped pants for me; they fit! They have the perfect stretch and fit over my belly and are not too big for my skinny thighs. I usually have to take in all my pants in the thigh area.
This is an outfit for the last warm days of fall. I wish the warm weather could stay a little bit longer. I'm too lazy to bring my winter clothes and shoes out again.
Have a great rest of the weekend.

Green Check

Here's a casual look from a few weeks ago. I had mentioned in a previous post that I couldn't wear this shirt on its own, but it looks like my body changed since the last time I said that. I wore the shirt this time thinking that I would have to layer it, but it looked okay worn alone. It would look better layered but I didn't want to go through all the fuss of layering.

Yellow and Navy and Why I Love Elbow Sleeves

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope your weekend was great. My Saturday was sort of different for a change: after choir rehearsal, we didn't have anywhere else to go so I actually got some reading in and spent considerable time on my bed. I cherish days like that. 

I love the way yellow and navy go together and I love my elbow sleeve top. An elbow sleeve top is great for balancing your shape if you are heavy on top and want to create a slimming effect. The sleeves are long enough to hide the upper arms and short enough to show some skin and not add bulk to the upper body. Long sleeves usually add a little more bulk than is needed. 

 Thank you for following and reading my blog. Have an awesome week ahead!

Blush and Skinnies: One Outfit, Three Events

I've had this blouse from Old Navy for a while. I'd been meaning to wear it with my burgundy pencil skirt but the need for wearing that skirt never came up, so I decided to wear it with jeans last weekend. No use having something in your closet and not wearing it.
The outfit served triple duty on Saturday. I had choir rehearsal, then went on to teach a class and then to a baby shower later in the evening.  Silky/polyester flowy blouse, skinny jeans and heels: works for any occasion and most definitely for my apple shaped body.

Lionesse Beauty Bar Ceramic Iron

Good Morning! You get to see me with crazy hair and no makeup today.
A big problem for me as a woman color is not being able to take good care my hair. I'm not very good at doing that and then I end up wearing extensions all the time.  My hair needs to be chemically relaxed every six to eight weeks but lack of time means I end up missing the eight week appointment. I was sent this Silk Ceramic Orange Flat Iron by Lionesse Beauty Bar to review. The straightener came in at the perfect time; I still wasn't able to make my appointment so I kept my hair in shape for a few more weeks by using the ceramic iron. 

The straightener has different heat settings, heats up quickly and helps eliminate frizz and static. My hair did remain silky and smooth for many days. It can be used for all hair types.

Have a Great Week!

Over the Knee Boots

I got interested in over the knee boots last year and embarked on an all winter search for the perfect ones. I got one in taupe which I'm wearing in this post.  I also wanted a black pair but never found the right one. Well, this year it seems the over the knee trend is here to stay with so many options out there. Here are a few of my picks. I should be getting my black pair soon. 

Are you a fan of over the knee boots?
